    HILARIOUS!

    We bought this book for our 10 year old son - he and his 12 year old sister (and my husband and I) LOVE it - we have all gotten a lot of laughs, plus it also teaches some great "skills", such as how to juggle, how to throw a frisbee, how to spin a pencil...This is a terrific book!

    Fun for adults and kids too.

    My niece picked up this book one day and read it while I looked at books. It kept her intertained with tons of ideas from how to bug people or just have some fun. Her dad loved it too! This is a great gift for the class clown or the kid with an imagination.

    wonderful, goofy fun for the adolescent in everyone

    Originally bought this as a gag gift for my son-in-law and the first copy was hijacked by my college age daughter who took it back to school with her. There are games, tricks and really wonderfully inane, just plain laugh out loud fun in this. Serious fun for older kids parties, or overgrown kids "playtime." Buy it.

    more from this reviewer

    My 10 year old thinks it's hilarious.

    As long as the kids understand it's a funny book rather than reality, it's a trip! Good for a laugh!

    A Great Tween Birthday Gift

    I bought this books a couple of times for my 10 year olds friends as birthday gifts. This book is a hit! It is not a typical book but becomes a source of entertainment even at the party with entertainment. It certainly is not a book about manners, or how to grow up faster, but in this day in age of our children to "perform, perform, perform" a book of how to have tween fun is great to have. If you want to give a unique gift,a gift that won't be repeated by somone else, and encourage the love of books,I would highly recommend it for the 9 - 12 age bracket for both boys and girls.

    Pranks & Silliness - a Classic!!

    I gave this to my 11-year-old boy for Christmas. After all the presents were opened, he went back to this one FIRST and started reading and laughing and reading parts out loud to us, while the cool Legos and electronics went untouched for a few hours. He picked it up everyday after that for at least 2 weeks, and still pulls it out and reads it for half and hour or more at a time.

    Definitely a BOY book - if you let your boys watch Three Stooges, this book is for them!

    My reluctant reader was hooked!

    This book gave my 10-year-old hours of entertainment, and usually picking up a book is the last activity she will choose. I let her use her Christmas money to purchase it a few days after the holidays, and it ended up being her favorite gift. Her dad and I read parts of it and enjoyed it as well.
